me now, cnbc washington reporter eamon javers. you heard the numbers we just ran down. what is the short-term tangible consequence if we don't get action on the fiscal cliff. >> cote is right, it does cause uncertainly. life is uncertain and so they know that there's going to be this issue and that washington is going to wrestle with it. in the short term, the very short term, i think actually some of the hype around the fiscal cliff is a little overblown, particularly because the first couple of days or week or so after we go over the fiscal cliff we won't see all that many impacts. all these tax and spending impacts take months to go into effect. it doesn't impact the economy until people start paying taxes, which could be several months down the line for most americans. on the spending side as well, spending is built into the cake so again you'd be looking at stuff that would be impacting the out months. for the first couple of months, no real specific impact. the big thing to worry about is whether wall street freaks out or not about the fact that we've gone over the fis
>>> at long last, feigned washington outrage has been replaced by actual washington outrage. it's friday, november 30th. this is "now." >>> joining me today, host of the aupon muss msnbc show melissa harris- perry is here. could it be that democrats are a little caught up in powerball madness? this is the reaction of a maryland man reportedly watching each lottery number fall into place and realize he may get everything he's ever wanted. yesterday treasury secretary timothy geithner went to capitol hill with a proposal that included everything the white house wanted. it has two stages. phase one, to be agreed on before the new year would raise nearly $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue including raising the top two marginal rates, ask for $50 billion in stimulus spending and a permanent end of congress' ability to prevent debt ceiling increases and nonspecified cuts to entitlement spending. phase two more friendly to republican interests calling for $400 billion in unspecified cuts to entitlement programs with no guarantees. the chances of this plan making it through congress may b
things done in washington -- supporters are gathering now -- to bring america to the white house and in so doing, basically get the american people to ratify the change that the president would like to see happen on capitol hill. >> yeah. this is one of the lessons he's learned from the obama care battle where he had no outside game. he basically told the left and all the folks who had supported him during the 2008 campaign, sit down, we've got this, we're going to do it through rahm emanuel, legislative wheeling and dealing. that didn't work so great. the other side flooded the capitol with people carrying guns so now he's mobilizing his base to try to get this done. >> and let us hear him mobilize that base. the president speaking at the white house. >> thank you so much. thank you, everybody. please have a seat. thank you. thank you very much. everybody, please have a seat. except you guys. don't sit down. well, good morning, everybody. >> good morning. >> you know, there's been a lot of talk here in washington about the deadlines we're facing on taxes and deficits. these dead
into the question of why it's not just me, it's the op-ed board, the editorial board of the "washington post" that said this is bizarre. why are they pursuing susan rice like this? there are troubling questions about these senators and their witch hunt that they have engaged in. >> david, john mccain said i am upset by answers that were given and answers that were not given. he's just upset generally about everything that happened. i will ask, is this the best thing the republicans have going for them? we have polling from cnn/orc that asks about a benghazi cover-up. 42% of respondents believe there was a cover-up. 54% believe the statements reflected the information that the white house with susan rice had at the time. >> that poll getses to what the republicans are trying to pull over here. they are trying to suggest that the issue is not what happened in benghazi, not the death of four -- of people working at the american government, including the ambassador and what the state department did, cia did or didn't do, they're trying to suggest what's here is a cover-up that barack obama right
to really change the way washington works? >> i think a lot of it will be the tone that he and the republican leadership set coming out of this. i think there is clearly the possibility of change. i think that on the president's side and those of us that have been supportive and the democratic side, it is not a day of "i told you so" or gloating, because there was at a lot risk here. we'll dealt everything in this election from voter suppression to gay rights to women rights, so in many ways, we can exhale and say, we didn't go backwards. now how do we put our best foot forward to go forward and appeal to the republicans that we need to have some common ground without compromising our principles. that's going to be a delicate balance. i think romney's statement last night was positive and obviously i'm not one that has given him a lot of commendations but he said what needed to be said last night that i didn't think he would and we'll see where it goes. i think that the president and what he said and the tone he set is where those of us that are supportive are going to have
finnney, and washington bureau chief for "the huffington post," ryan grim. a gradual inching away from the edge of the fiscal cliff, depends on who you believe. even with the clock ticking it's almost two week since president obama and john boehner met in person. nbc news confirms two leaders spoke by phone for 15 minutes last night a call described by politico as short and curt. boehner gave his state on the current talks a moment ago. >> no substancetive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over past two weeks. all eyes are on the white house. the country doesn't need a v victory lap it needs leader. >> behind the scenes of the contours of a deal are starting to take shape, a trillion plus dollars in tax heights, entitlements of $400 billion and 1.2 trillion in spending cuts to offset the dreaded sequester. if the phoners haven't been gabfests the president is chatting up other folks including small business owners, middle class americans and mitt romney-loving ceos. if awkward meetings are par for the course in washington, the president's one tod
here, "chicago sun-times" washington bureau chief lynn sweet and buzz feed's mckay coffins fresh from the trail. house speaker john boehner is doing the dance of the seven veils. ♪ >> a day after the president's re-election, the speaker of the house opened the door to additional tax revenues. >> we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. >> but after that telling peekaboo, boehner pulled back, announcing tax increases are not an option. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. >> raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. >> last night, he revealed to diane sawyer that his party was no longer seeking to repeal the affordable care act. >> well, i think the election changes that. it's pretty clear that the president was elected, obama care is the law of the land. >> but you won't be spending the time next year trying to repeal obama care. >> there may be parts of it that we believe need to be changed. we may do that. no decisions at this point. >> but hours after that interview, boehner shrouded himself once aga
politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008, when we talked about change i told you, i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long. by lobby
in "the washington post" -- skeptics particularly in the arab countries surrounding israel have seemed to consider the tweets posts overly triumphant or insensitive. the less pressure he feels from anti-israeli activists a s musl brother hood factions the better israel is likely to be served. we have tweets focusing on those who have been assassinated, quote/unquote eliminated. here's one that says since the start of operation pillar of defense the idf has targeted 1,350 terror sites through the gaza strip. we talk about the new age of war and the idea that not only are you having a live tweeting -- live twitter stream of what you're doing but what kind of message that sends in terms of your engagement and whether it's, perhaps, to as "the washington post" says, to triumphant? >> alex, i can't think of the new age of war when you're witnessing an age-old struggle here. for the sake of the children on both sides stop this abomination. it's worth you mentioned the israeli defense forces. it's worth remembering in terls of the timeline, there were negotiations under way for a long-term ce
, heather mcghee, richard wolffe, from "the washington post" msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. secretary of state hillary clinton is on the ground in the middle east. yesterday, president obama released clinton from their joint asia trip and sent her to jerusalem for an urgent meeting with ben ja man netanyahu. this morning clinton flew from jerusalem to the west bank to meet with mahmoud abbas, president of the palestinian authority, before returning to jerusalem with additional talks with netanyahu. secretary clinton is in cairo where she met with president mohamed morsi of egypt who's mediating the discussions. as secretary clinton carries the official white house message there is new attention being paid to the president's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreem
jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it is a triumphant moment for everyone, even though no one has actually within won yet be. you can feel the excitement in the air, kurt. we play a little bit of sound from the candidates in the last 24 hours. everybody is making their final pitches. however, given the week that we have just had, it seems like mitt romney has more of an uphill climb that perhaps he even thought he would at this point in the race. i will call to your attention a tweet from rupert murdoch who tweets now christie, while thanking o., must redeclare for romney or take blame for next four dire years. >> which to me is the kind of hysteria on that side that oh my god, i mean i get the interim republican problem with chris christie appearing like a rational person with the president. but really, to suggest that that -- that his recommitment to romney will have any serious affect to make up the space that they're apparently behind says to me they're deeply concerned. >> we've talked about how this whole thing is balancing on a knife's edge, right, eric? that the polls are
analyst and mother jones washington bureau chief, david corn. the bitter partisan marathon election is over, but what of the bitter partisan marathon gridlock in washington? there are glimmers of hope that lawmakers are prepared to follow advice offered by both presidential candidates. >> our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. >> and in the coming weeks and months i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. >> maybe not initially, as "the new york times" reports, after his speech, mr. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senator republican leader, mitch mcconnell but was told they were asleep. >> wake them up, for goodness sake. >> he is the president. >> wake him up. >> yesterday, yesterday, senate majority leader harry reid struck a tone of cautious optimism. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's bettor work together. i want to work together but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. >> hours later there was some reason for hope. th
, the man with the golden throat, michael eric dyson. msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of "the washington post," always effortlessly elegant. and salon.com columnist and co-host of msnbc's "the cycle" steve corn knackster kornacki. army wives meets john hecarry. three ring circus, mission impossible the cohen brothers. the extramarital affair/political drama that enveloped former cia director david petraeus gets more extraordinary by the minute. this morning washington woke up to the news that the top commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, d
america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger. netanyahu,. >>> washington is caught in its very own episode of spy versus spy. the tactics once employed by top intelligence gathering teams at the cia sifting through ip addresses, e-mails and fake drop boxes have been turned against the intelligence community's top official. robert cohen writes in "the new york times" -- joining us now is msnbc's chris hayes, host up "up" for a segment we call up now. >> great to be here. >> great to have you, chris. as you termed it yesterday, we were talking about this, the snake eating its own tail. i almost said head. one of the things that is not discussed very much in terms -- both in the national news media and on the left is the expansion of surveillance powers that occurred under president obama. >> there was a massive expansion in the wake of the 9/11 and that has been codified in law and legislative bat else that weren't even battles. the fights of reauthorization was the closest we got to a actual litigation of these issues an the good guys, the people on the rig
or washington culture moment for these kinds of like uncertainty and stability in the team, in terms of the world it's not a good time at all. it will be an important test for the white house not to get distracted by this kind of lurid scand toll make some good decisions to, you know, back down the republican opposition on rice if that's where they're going to go on secretary of state. it actually is a pretty important first test and it is a lot more significant than the fiscal cliff stuff because, there's a lot more control that the white house has here but they've got to use it and act powerfully and swiftly. >> that's a question, how hard they're going to fight for susan rice. someone who has frequently gotten inside the minds of the obamas, we know the president is someone who tends to defend his own and does not like throwing -- >> except when he throws them under the bus. >> in terms of staff shakeups, eric holder's head, tim geithner, he convinced them to stay on. >> he walked away from tom dashiell four years ago. >> and greg craig. >> and elizabeth warren. plenty of examples
, sanctions on iran, sanctions on north korea. you're not in the daily ma maelstrom in washington, d.c. the information that the intelligence community provided her at the time, but that intelligence changes. so i think the president is right, to back his people. secondly, to say that ambassador rice was deceptive is wrong. she is reading from pieces of paper that you get every morning from either a briefer or the intelligence community and that's what she had when she went on those news shows. but to suggest that she is trying to be deceptive is just not the case. she is a very good ambassador. >> i think the issue there is that that line of argument almost cuts both ways and lindsey graham brought that up. if she isn't the person to be talking substantive about this, just reading briefings and not the qualified person on benghazi why was she put out there. why was susan rice the person delivering the administration's message when it probably should have been the secretary of state? >> well, i think if it were the secretary of state or whomever, both of them would have been reading
it back to washington. >> you do? >> i do. >> from your lips. >> from my lips to obama's ears. luke russert, my friend, we have to leave it there. we know that you and your boat shoes will be making some tracks in the next -- >> too cold for the boat shoes. switched to the bucks. >> the bucks. a seasonal shoe. i should have known. >> seasonal shoe. you have hipster sam stein there. he's also a good stylist. >> hipster thrown out. >> martin. >> you got everything. >> luke russert thank you as always. happy early thanksgiving my friend. >> you as well. >> "time" magazine rana fa ru har, happy early thanksgiving to you. >> thank you. >> the holidays are upon us. we will talk turkey, literally, with the "new york times" national editor. that's up ahead. americans are always ready to work hard for a better future. since ameriprise financial was founded back in 1894, they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough times. good times. never taking a bailout. there when you need them. helping millions of americans over the centuries. the strength of a globa
washington, the man with all the answers, cnbc's amman jabbers. what's your assessment of this jobs report? >> it's definitely a strong jobs report, stronger than expected consensus was about 125,000 jobs, we saw 171,000. that was a surprise to the upside. in the morning wall street liked that, the dow futures up on that news, but politically i think the interesting thing here is that all the conspiracy theorists are gone back in their holes today, we haven't heard from all those folks and part of the reason because there's something in here for everybody. the republicans are saying this isn't good enough and the economy is at a standstill. democrats are saying look, we want to build on the progress that we're making. and so it is slow, but steady progress here and i think you have to look at some of the internal numbers here, 500,000 new people joined the labor force in the last month and look at these revisions over the previous months, in august, they revised from 142,000 jobs gained to 192,000 jobs gained. in september revised from 114,000 to 148,000 jobs gained. so big increases in th
that bad for the gop wounder kin. john heilemann writes -- joining us now from washington, is the editor of the new republic franklin. >> hey. >> we've been watching this tape of the incredible anim mittble bill clinton out there doing this thing. also joe biden out there, two very effective surrogates for team obama. we have heard precious little from paul ryan save an echo of the revenge line they are trotting out over the last 24 hours. do you think in the end, regardless of what happens tomorrow, paul ryan has been a good choice for mitt romney this campaign cycle? >> i agree with you. he's been strangely disappeared from the campaign trail. i think he's out there, drawing some sizable crowds but nothing like the way the mccain people trotted out even sarah palin at the end of the campaign in order to gin up enthusiasm. but i think there's a way in which had he may have on that slightly hurt mitt romney which is that you look at medicare as an issue, and the way in which the ryan plan has resonated despite the fact that the obama people haven't really pushed it like the way that you
's "washington post" writing in the waning days of campaign mitt romney was uplifting, optimistic and inspirational. in other words, almost entirely different from the man we saw and heard these past many months. i couldn't had help but wonder whether he would be in a better position if h had taken the high road months ago. your magazine had a very powerful i thought endorsement of barack obama and did a masterful assessment of romney and his weaknesses. do you think that is true? >>. >> we've got two different reports now on how romney -- on the one hand he's depressed and other hand he's up. we don't know. let me second the point about voting. voting is the sacrament of our democracy and that's why i vote. because i'm a new yorker, so everybody knows which way new york is going, but i just persistently and stubbornly vote every time because it's like the altar of democracy. >> do you think the fact that this is tight is going to be -- to chris's point we don't know what's going to happen until it happens. do you think the tightness of this race will encourage people to go out th
next year. >> so she thinks what? >> there is wealth protection lobby in washington. and he's part of norquist and it's powerful. but i think we're at a point in time where it might be a little bit out of step with its own constituents. i covered campaign finance last year. i spent the whole year talking to millionaires and billionaires. and i, too, on the other side of the aisle, did not talk to one, including david koch who said, sure, i could see some higher taxes on me in exchange for a bunch of compromise. the mathematical truth is, anti-tax republicans could come out of this with a super-sweet deal on spending, huge spending cuts for historically very small tax increases on a small number of americans. yet they want to do the deal. and that ultimately is going to be very good for their side. >> and a reminder, that's exactly what happened in 1991. that's exactly what happened. is that the republicans, they talked a very, very good game, but they walked out of the white house and also out of that deal with a pretty sweet deal. when you take a look at the overall mechanics. and
